restore from 8 to 8.1
So I had a huge problem updating from windows 8 to 8.1. Basically my hard drive is toast, and I need to do a clean install of windows. At this point in time the only available OS is 8.1. My question is: If I have a backup of windows 8, is it still possible to restore my system on a computer with windows 8.1 installed if I just download Aomei Backuper and click restore from the UI? Any help or advice would be very much appreciated as it's been about two and a half weeks since I used my own computer.
